Thank you for your help and the explanation. It's quite a relief. I feel better now. It's just that there are pretty scary videos and articles about the wobble issue out on the internet.Well, Jeeps and death wobble are like rain and getting wet...or drinking and getting drunk...
Seriously, though, there are two separate things going on here:
- Since launch JL has suffered of a well-documented case described as vague or wandering steering feel, which has been traced back to a weak steering box, and should have been remedied for 2021.
- Death wobble is a completely separate issue and very rare on a brand new Jeep, or any well-maintained solid axle vehicle. People unfamiliar with Death Wobble refer to JL’s vague steering as Death Wobble but that is incorrect. Death wobble is a serious condition that develops over time on poorly modified, poorly maintain Jeeps.
There’s almost-zero chance that your new Jeep will suffer from Death Wobble off the factory, or at any time for that matter, if you do good quality modifications and maintain your Jeep properly.
Doing a 3.5-inch lift and slapping 37-inch tires without beefing up everything else is a sure way to develop death wobble over time.
